Perry 29%, Romney 18%, Bachmann 13%

A very interesting Rasmussen poll came out today…

Texas Governor Rick Perry, the new face in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, has jumped to a double-digit lead over Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann with the other announced candidates trailing even further behind.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary voters, taken Monday night, finds Perry with 29% support. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who ran unsuccessfully for the GOP presidential nomination in 2008, earns 18% of the vote, while Bachmann, the Minnesota congresswoman who won the high-profile Ames Straw Poll in Iowa on Saturday, picks up 13%.

Ted Cruz Leads The Field At The Clear Lake Tea Party’s Senate Job Interview

Clear Lake, TX – The Clear Lake Tea Party (CLTP) in conjunction with the Alliance of Constitutional Patriots, and several other area Tea Party groups held the first ever job interview for the U.S. Senate.

The venue for the event was the Bayou Theater on the University of Houston’s Clear Lake Campus. The event was also streamed online so people could watch from the comfort of their home or office.

There are sixteen potential Republican or Libertarian candidates seeking to replace the retiring Kay Bailey Hutchison in the U.S. Senate. Event organizers said that invitations were extended to all candidates plus the candidates were asked to sign the CLTP pledge card as well. Only six candidates were willing to sign the pledge: former Solicitor General Ted Cruz, Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert,

The Response Rally – The Only Thing Political About It Was The Media Covering It

Houston, TX – There was a smattering of protesters greeting attendees of the Response Rally in Houston, Texas on Saturday. No more than two or three dozen by my estimation compared to more than 25,000 who flocked to Reliant Stadium to pray for a nation in crisis.

The majority of the protesters were there in support of gay marriage. There were also a few people who were protesting for separation of church and state and, of course, there were a few atheists protesting God knows what.

A representative from Americans United for a Separation of Church and State was passing out a press release from their leader, Reverend Barry Lynn that asserts that Governor Perry is not recognizing “America’s wide spiritual diversity.”

Big Sin vs Little Sin – What’s the Difference?

I had to recently ask this question to some Filipino government officials and Philippine National Police Officers after they were visited by me at my apartment, after once again, I had had some of my personal property stolen. The long and the short of the situation is that their response to what was stolen of mine, that if there is, what was described to me of a “lesser value”, of something stolen, I should just “ignore” the theft, however, if I had something that they believed (in their own mind as valuable) was a “large enough” value, the thief would be arrested. Yes indeed, they really did say this to me although there is not law saying such. I was not entirely stunned as as I have seen this issue of distorted and non-biblical belief systems before with a Filipina Migration Scammer in the USA. I do want to immediately share that I know this non-biblical attitude

Obama’s Job Czar Sends American Jobs To China

The man Obama chose to help create new jobs in America is Jeff Immelt, CEO of General Electric. GE was recently in the public spotlight for not paying a cent of taxes, and now in an even more ironic twist, he’s sending American jobs to China.

In a recent announcement, GE said it is moving the company’s headquarters in charge of X-Ray technology to China. In an effort to increase sales to the giant Asian nation, and cut costs in the process, the largest manufacturer of imaging machines in the world is closing its US headquarters after 115 years. Until now, GE’s X-ray business was headquartered in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
